2017 was definitely a year of out-there trends, from braided eyebrows to colours of the rainbow highlighters, but some of its trends live on and are worth the hype. The makeup brands and trends below are staying with us for 2018 and we couldn’t be happier!
Fenty Beauty: Classic Glam
Perhaps the most hyped about line to hit the shelves last year was none other than the ever talented Riri’s Fenty Beauty. Starting with the every skin shade friendly Pro Filt’r foundation, the range expanded into nearly all the avenues makeup has to offer, focusing on highlighters and lip colours in particular.
This look is all about statements, from the bold brows to the vibrant red lippie, the glitter eyeshadow and wispy lashes, combined with the subtly highlighted skin.
The look wouldn’t be complete, however, without the stunning Miu Miu MU 11QS sunnies – a bold accessory if ever there was one.
Huda Beauty: Pretty in Pink
Beauty guru Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty has been wowing us for years, starting out with her work of art mink lashes, and bringing the pretty back with liquid lipsticks and highlighters, finally branching out into eyeshadows and foundation.
While iridescent pink eyeshadow may not be for everyone, there’s no denying it’s pretty! The graduating ombre shadow is accented by the extreme winged cat eyeliner, the on fleek brows, pink cheeks and lips and of course, hot pink sunglasses.
Grab the Oliver Peoples OV5344SU PARQUET to steal Huda’s style!
Gigi Hadid, known primarily for her modeling career and striking good looks, has branched out into makeup collaborations with none other than Maybelline, creating a sleek line of primarily neutral palettes.
Get her signature look with a focus on flawless, glowing-from-within skin. Achieve chiseled cheeks with a mix of dewy-finish medium coverage foundation, a minimal application of concealer for under eyes and blemishes, a cool tone contour shade drawn in a number three shape down each side of your face, hitting your forehead, as well as just under your cheekbones and chin. Highlight the areas where the light would naturally hit your face, feather a brow pencil through sparse areas of your brows and finish off with thickening mascara and nude lipstick.
Let your inner glow be emphasized by these ever vibrant Police SPL339 sunglasses.
Dose of Colors: Daredevil Dark
As the name suggests, this brand is all about the colours, making this the perfect look to highlight what Dose of Colors can bring to the table. We love the the deep burgundy lip and shades of yellow and orange on the eyes, accentuated by the bold brows, which are a recurring theme throughout all the featured looks.
We adore the drama created by the striking specs on display here too. Try the round, light tortoiseshell Persol PO3128V for your own dose of colour!
Charlotte Tilbury: Au Naturel Nudes
Keep it Au Naturel with our fresh-faced last look! Courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury’s hype creating products, their Legendary Lashes mascara, glowy face primer, and signature nudes all take centre stage here.
Brush on a surprising subtle khaki eyeshadow, and make your lashes the statement with layers of black mascara. Add some highlighter to your tear ducts and a touch above your apricot-toned blusher, and complete the look with your metallic i Wear i Wear 6065 glasses. Effortless girl next door glam achieved in no time.
